[Solved] Unable to change processor settings on Kali Linux guest

Postby robertdawson » 14. Nov 2017, 10:09

I've installed a Kali Linux VM via VirtualBox on my Mac OS 10.11.6.

When I look at the Processor settings I see that two CPUs are attributed
to my VM. Since I've only got 4 CPUs in all, an online tutorial advises me
to reduce this to 1 CPU.
Unfortunately, the GUI in Processor settings seems unresponsive and frozen :
I cannot move the grid or edit the "2" to "1".

How can I fix this ?

Shut down the VM before trying to make the change.
